Activity:

Hiking Bells Canyon to Lower Falls - A 4.6 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail located near Sandy, Utah that features a lake and waterfall. This trail has only about 1/3 shade. Takes about 30 min to the Reservoir where you can rest or fish. Continue up the canyon another 30 min to the bridge and some shade. Cross the bridge and continue up canyon on dirt trail. The last 20 min are more rocky and steep. The trail turns left and down about 200 feet to the falls. You can hike to the top of the falls as well. We also found a nice picnic spot below the falls on large slabs of granite with views of the valley. Trail Report
